    Student Congress Killing Trees, Time, and Spirits

    How many times have you been sitting in the library, printing before class, or even just leisurely finishing up a paper a few days in advance? OK, scratch that last part. How many times have you been sitting in the library, frantically trying to print out a paper that is ALREADY late, and, as you hit Ctrl-P, you run over to the printer, only to find that some obnoxious person has printed out 20 copies for themselves?
